Participatory video (PV) is a process involving a group or
community in shaping and creating their own films
according to their own sense of what is important and
how they want to be represented (Johansson et al. 1999).
Although there are an increasing number of examples of
how PV has aided and enabled social change, advocacy,
activism and empowerment (e.g. White 2003; Suarez et al.
2008; Khamis et al. 2009; O’Neill 2009; see work of
Insight at http://insightshare.org), there is as yet limited
research on the use of PV in the context of academic
inquiry outside the assessment of empowerment and
emancipation (Cornish and Dunn 2009).
